T he main purpose of the present study was to investigate psychometric properties of the School/University Burnout Inventory (SBI, Salmela-Aro, Kiuru, Leskinen & Nurmi, 2009) among Iranian students. 322 university students (166 male, 156 female) completed the SBI and the Schoolwork Engagement Inventory (SEI, Salmela-Aro & Upadaya, 2012). The exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis methods and internal consistency were used to compute the SBI's factorial validity and reliability, respectively. Also, in order to examine the construct validity of the SBI, we computed correlations between total score of MSPSS and it's subscales with school engagement. The results of principal component analysis (PC) and varimax rotation replicated 3-factor structure of exhaustion at schoolwork, cynicism toward the meaning of school and sense of inadequacy at school in the Iranian sample. Goodness-of-fit indices of confirmatory factor analysis confirmed the 3 extracted factors. Internal consistency for the total score of SBI and its subscale consisted of exhaustion; cynicism and inadequacy were 0/91, 0/85, 0/84 and 0/89 respectively. In sum, these findings provide evidence for the validity and reliability of the SBI as a instrument to measure of school burnout among Iranian university students.
